Research changes lives
With your help, Heart & Stroke has been leading advances in heart and brain health for close to 70 years. From the prevention of disease to the development of life-saving interventions to the transformation of rehabilitation, our research is truly life-changing. Click here to see an inspiring timeline of the medical breakthroughs that we've achieved because of the generosity of Heart & Stroke donors over the years.
Heart disease and stroke have not gone away: in Canada, someone dies from these diseases every 7 minutes. And we've now learned that COVID-19 can cause damage to previously healthy hearts and have serious impacts on the brain. We can't afford to put the brakes on driving research breakthrough, but we can't do it without you. We need your help to fund the best and brightest scientific minds on the verge of making discoveries that can save or drastically improve lives.
Let's beat as one!
At Heart and Stroke, we’re funding and discovering medical breakthroughs to keep you and your loved ones alive. Your support of the 2021 Heart & Stroke Gala will go towards funding four exceptional BC researchers. Together we can beat heart disease, beat stroke. Because when we beat as one, we can make a real difference in the lives of people across Canada who are living with or at risk for heart disease and stroke.
